Black Velvet

Black Velvet

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
Mama’s dancin’ with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin’ like molasses in the sky
The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Up in Memphis the music’s like a heatwave
White lightning, bound to drive you wild
Mama’s baby’s in the heart of every school girl
“Love me tender” leaves ’em cryin’ in the aisle
The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true
Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Every word of every song that he sang was for you
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon, what could
You do?

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please
If you please, if you please, if you please

Black Velvet‘ ~Alannah Myles~

Isn’t this just about one of the sexiest songs there is? It goes back a few years, well way more than a few, but to me it’s as good today as it was back then. Alanah Myles is Canadian, if anyone is interested in that bit of trivia! Hey….speaking of trivia……..from my point of view as someone who knew life well before the days of having Google at my fingertips 24/7/365, …….one thing that having that level of access to information has taken away is the debate! You know those conversations where I say it was so-and-so in a movie, but you argue that it was that other guy. We then embark on a heated exchange about why I’m right and you’re wrong. All anyone has to do now is plug the name in your smartphone and voilè….instant answer. It completely negates the need for a face to face discussion, that can make a person laugh, get annoyed, or even mad while trying to convince the other of their opinion. It’s too bad, because it was always a great way to learn about someone, practice your debate skills, and it was fun! Nowadays the question is posed……both parties agree they’re not sure about the answer and both then refer to the smartphone for the answer. What fun is that……that’s just wanting instant gratification……..and there’s so much more that can come out of that. Back in the day it would have been really nice to have the answer eventually, but now it’s way too easy. I make a point of not letting anyone get the answer until it’s been discussed completely and we can at least have some face-to-face exchanges. Sure, everyone went around singing the wrong lyrics of their favourite songs all the time, but that just made life interesting…..to this day does anyone know the lyrics of ‘Blinded By the Light’ by Manfred Man…..I’m pretty sure they’re not what they sound like!!

I’m sure all you Halloween fans know it’s counting down to that day, for me it’s not a factor in life. I’ve never been a fan of it, even back when I was a kid and got the pillowcase full of candy. I just never saw the point. Well, here in SL there’s something that I do like about it….and that’s these boots from **UTOPIA@DESIGN**! The ‘HALLOWEEN Boots’ are a great design of spider web on fabulous thigh high boots, and they come with 2 versions. The leather with spider web design comes with or without blood spatter. Since I’d not been involved in a crime scene or some such thing, I chose to go with the no blood option. I’ll save them for a time when I finally lose it and feel that violence is the only option! They’re front and center at the **UTOPIA@DESIGN** main store.

OMG….the ‘Faith Dress’ from TETRA is incredible!! The buttons are threatening to come undone, the decolletage, and the short hemline all make this so sexy! It’s available now at Collabor88.

The ‘G1224’ hair from tram is another one of my favourites.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is one of 6(plus mirrors) of the ‘Viktoria’ set of poses from Imitation. The set’s available til the end of the month at the Pose Fair.

NEW favourite sim alert!! Black Bayou Lake is perfect for photographs, all dark and spooky!
